John Rowe, former chairman and CEO of Exelon, and Dick Kelly, former CEO of Xcel Energy and chairman of EEI, have joined Opower's advisory board.

Tom Brady, former chairman of BGE, has also been named the chairman of the advisory board. All three are widely recognized as industry leaders among state energy commissioners, regulatory commissioners and utility executives around the world.

Exelon is the third largest power company in the U.S. Its family of companies includes Exelon Generation and delivery companies BGE, ComEd and PECO. Xcel Energy, based in Minnesota, operates in eight states and serves more than 3.3 million electric customers and 1.8 million natural gas customers.

In addition to Rowe, Kelly and Brady, existing Opower advisory board members include Fred Butler, former Board of Directors at the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC), and Dian Gruenich, former Commissioner of the California Public Utilities Commission. Opower will continue to add leaders to its advisory board in 2013.
